Ty Simpkins stars in "Insidious," opposite Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne, as Dalton Lambert. Simpkins also recently starred in "The Next Three Days," opposite Russell Crowe, as Luke.

Ty Simpkins is an accomplished film and television actor with more than ten feature films under his belt. Most recently, Ty attended the Toronto Film Festival (2010) in support of "Insidious," directed by James Wan ("Saw"). "Insidious" is a creepy, yet fun-filled film, in which Ty had a starring role alongside Patrick Wilson as his father for the second time in his young career.

In 2003 at three years old, Ty's lucky film break came when Steven Spielberg cast him in "War of the Worlds" opposite Dakota Fanning and Tom Cruise. This soon led to a featured role in "All the King's Men" directed by Steven Zaillian where he played a young Jude Law. At the age of 4, Ty had the pleasure of working on Todd Field's adaptation of "Little Children," in which he played Aaron, the son of Patrick Wilson and Jennifer Connelly. In 2005, Ty played Colin Farrell's child in "Pride and Glory," directed by Gavin O'Connor. Ty has also appeared in "Revolutionary Road," directed by Sam Mendes where Ty paired with his real-life sister, actress Ryan Simpkins, to play the children of Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Looking back to 2001, at just three weeks old, young Ty first appeared on television on the series "One Life to Live" where he shared the recurring role as Jack Cramer. A few weeks later, Ty won the lead role as Jude Cooper Bauer, on "Guiding Light," which he continued for the next five years. Since then, he has appeared on "Law & Order," "CSI," "Private Practice," "Family of Four" and "Sisters Street," and next up Ty will be working on the feature, "The Shadow Man," a script which is a finalist at the Sundance and Slamdance screenwriting labs.

Ty is the youngest of three children. He lives in Los Angeles, California, with his family. When he is not working, he loves fencing, ice hockey and baseball. He also likes playing with his dogs Rufus and Chapin.
